Castelo de Sines

A medieval castle that was restored several times along the years. Of the primitive castle still remain the walls with battlements and turrets, the donjon with windows and the palace of the military commander. In the armory one can view interesting armour paintings, war trophies and the royal shield of Dom João V. The walls still have architectural visigothic elements.
